Hey my lovelies, Just wanted to give a heads up about the Stila "In the Moment Palette." I bought this palette several months ago, and it is so gorgeous. Pigmented and really, really pretty. It's one of my favorites that I can I use all year long. It's the palette I'm using this week. And the colors work all year long! http://www.sephora.com/in-the-moment-eye-shadow-pa lette-P300604?skuId=1381235
This morning I checked the sale section and to my surprise there was a nice Bite set with 3 lipsticks. So I went to checkout and guess what... ITEM DOES NOT SHIP TO CANADA... WTF??? Bite is a Canadian Company. So I called the rouge line since I thought it was an IT mistake... and I was told... Oh no this is a holiday set restriction. WHAT????? So apparently this holiday set is only available to the US. Like come on!!!! So again this proves that Sephora HATES Canadians... we can't even buy products that are made in OUR OWN Country!!!! This is the stupidest excuse I have EVER heard! http://www.sephora.com/deconstructed-rose-lipstick -trio-P393240?skuId=1674266&country_switch=ca
I was about to purchase Immaculate Liquid Powder by Hourglass, but decided to try to find something less spendy. I saw that the two recommended foundations for oily/combination acne-prone skin are this Hourlgass and the Clinique Acne Solutions. It's too close to Christmas for me to want to go anywhere near a brick-and-mortar store and I love free samples, so I've decided to purchase online. However, Clinique's shade selection names are VERY far from helpful compared to Hourglass's offerings. No undertone descriptions, very vague shade descriptions. My skin is probably somewhere between fair and medium with yellow undertones. I'm basically a WASP with some Filipina thrown in...I tan very well but I will burn if I'm out long enough, red hair looks great on me, and I gravitate towards silver colored jewelry. I figured that Nude would work for the Hourglass foundation. I once purchased Kat Von D's Lock It Foundation in L46 and it was way too pink, so I'm thinking that warm/pink undertones aren't for me. And I have Almay Clear Complexion in Ivory 100, and that seems too light on me. So...Does anyone have any experience with the actual undertones and shades that Clinique offers for Acne Solutions? Especially helpful if you have medium/light skin with yellow undertones. Sorry for the wordy response...first post here, and although I know things are returnable, it would be great to get it right on the first try. Thanks!
So I just checked Ebay and there are resellers selling these for $500-$600. One seller listed it at $799.95! Would you buy it? I personally wouldn't, the vault was supposed to be a good deal and at $799.95, you're just paying for the case that comes with it since all the other products aren't even limited edition! I am just shocked to see that people have actually bought these. Would love to hear your thoughts!
I'm looking to learn more about applying makeup. (namely eye shadow) But anyone can make a youtube video. So who makes the best ones? Especially videos that are good for those who know NOTHING to start with. Thanks so much!!!
Please help me select a super special Christmas gift for my son's 17 year old girlfriend. I posted this in the wrong category by mistake so decided to repost in case it was overlooked. I'd like to buy this girl the most highly coveted / Holy Grail item for girls in this age bracket. I was thinking of holiday collections that I like, (Tarte or Too Faced for example ) but considered that my taste may be far from what young girls prefer. I don't know her well, my son didn't have much luck prying info from her, so I don't know what her preferences are aside from that she wears eyeliner, mascara & occasionally neutral or light coloured lip gloss. Also, I don't know if this helps or not, but she's into horses. Thank you so much for any ideas or advice!

So I've been having a problem with every single blush I have ever bought and used because all of them end up looking like a wine/cranberry one! It's started to really annoy me because the colors I play clearly are not meant to be that dark (ex: tarte magic, benefits coralista, etc). All of the blushes I buy look like corals, peaches, or baby doll pinks in the packaging and on other people, but they always end up looking sooo dark, red, and mauve, on me, and sometimes they even end up looking like a brown. I'm not sure why all of my blushes end up looking so dark. At first I thought I might be too pale for these blushes, but I've seen people who are paler and darker than me and the blushes look true to color and them. I thought it might have been the brand I am using, but I've tried so many brands and each blush I get always ends up being reddish plum on me. I also thought I was applying to little or too much product, but no matter what amount of product I use I still end up with super dark cheeks. Anyone know what could cause these blushes to look so different on me? and does anyone know how to fix this problem? It's starting to really irritate me since I'm buying a bunch of gorgeous blushes, yet none of them end up looking like how they are supposed to be.
I suppose I'm referring to color products (eye shadow/liner, blush, lips). I feel like I always choose everything based on my eye color, but a while back, one of the associates at a department store suggested some different shades to play off my hair color. I would never have thought of that, and would never have given a second thought to the shades he was suggesting because my hair is a warm, light brown/dirty blonde whereas my skin is primarily neutral and my eyes are light blue. I don't proclaim to know everything, but I had never run across the idea of matching to hair color before. Do you use features other than your eyes to choose your product shades?
I'm surprised no one has posted about these! So Marlena came out with 10 new eyeshadows about 2 weeks ago. They are a brand new finish in the MUG line and are supposed to be comparable to the Stila Magnificent Metals eyeshadow (according to her). The Foiled Eyeshadows are a high pigment, ultra metallic finish. Since they are already very metallic, no Fix+ or any mixing medium is needed. There are 10 shades ranging from an intense copper to a bright purple. They are $9.99 each or $89.99 for all ten shades. They are more expensive than the regular eyeshadows because they were more expensive to manufacture. The shades are: Magic Act ( Light gold with yellow undertones) In the Spotlight (Soft pink with coral undertones) Grandstand (Medium rose gold with slight taupe undertones) Showtime (Rusty brown with warm undertones) Flame Thrower (True brightened warm copper) Jester ( Bright mossy green with slight gold undertones) Houdini ( Deep emerald teal green) Mesmerized ( Deep medium taupe with strong purple undertones) Center Stage ( Bright royal blue) Caitlin Rose ( Bright amethyst purple) Are you going to pick up a few of these? I'm planning on picking up Grandstand, Showtime, Flame Thrower, and Caitlin Rose. If you ladies do, please pick up Caitlin Rose. It's dedicated to a daughter of a family friend of Marlena's who passed away from Batten Disease and all proceeds from the sale of each Caitlin Rose eyeshadow will go to the Beyond Batten Disease Foundation. I also hope to pick up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Titanium eyeshadows soon and compare both brands.
So I just hit VIB ROUGE!!!!!! I was $9 away so how could I not place an order right? I have been shopping at Sephora for years and have never made it but this year I finally did. The little things that make my day better....its been a rough few weeks. Now to tackle the massive pile of laundry that is calling my name.
IMATS LA 2015 is next month! I will be flying out there for about a week with some ladies from BT. So I want to know... who's going? What vendors are you excited to see? Any products in particular you'll be hunting down?
What are your favorite Tom Ford Makeup products? And what are your experiences with the brand? Makeup brush inputs will help tremendously as well! Do you own any? If you do why do you buy his line? If you don't have any products, what is stopping you from purchasing his line?
Hi guys, a post on the trade thread by carrierose got me thinking...Ive been collecting (or trying to) the Ud Revolution lipstick minis. I already have the colors in the Full Frontal mini set (twenty percent off, then free with points) and a freebie of Rapture and Naked. I have an extra Rapture and I think carrierose does also. I (we) are looking to trade for another color I don't have. If you got the Silver glitter bag GWP from Ulta, it came with one- thats where I got the Naked. So if you have any other color except Rapture and Naked, I''ll take it. Ebay is way too high to buy freebies when I know there is a possiblility of Bters willing to trade!
Hello Ladies, After reading abt HG Ambient Lighting Palette in beauty talk I am so tempted to buy it. But I am too lazy to use make up on a daily basis, hardly i use it like 12 times a year or may be less. And I recently got this estee lauder color portfolio 2014 as a gift I am wondering if I should buy the HG one, as I really like this but I dont know if it is worth it for a Medium Asian Skin tone(3Y09) Any suggestions?
Hi I usually use 120# in makeupforever HD foundation. and this shade is almost matched with my skin. Even this shade is little darker than my skin, I want to match my foundation with my neck So, i hope you recommend me similar shade in Estee Lauder Double wear ! Help me
1st of all let me tell you it is a RANT and big enough to be written upper case. There is a YSL makeover event taking place at various Bay locations. So I don't know what get in my head and I booked for this YSL event with google eye. Let me tell you the staff @ counter is horrible. 1st off when I called to get info, I asked them if there is any purchase necessary and I was told no, all I need to do is buy a $35 HBC gift card that has to be used on the day of appointment and I give them my credit card info over the phone and pick up my GC when I come for appointment.I was given a time for 6:30 but when I reached there, it looked like they are going according to first come first serve basis or they have given same time to so many people. I have to wait for 1 full hour for my turn and it came awfully close to my pickup ride time. The experts were busy with eye makeups and counter staff was preparing skin for makeover. The girl asked me if I use any of the YSL products, I told her I use their highlighter in 3.5 and mascara (BTW I'm not impressed by either) She said no no 5.5 will be better for you and put it on me and then applied lots of powder to set it, then she said well I think may be you were right let's try 3.5 and she applied lots of 3.5 highlighter under my eyes and again set it with a terribly heavy dusting of powder and when I gave her a questionable look she said oh your skin is looking flawless you'll be happy to see the end result. Then came the expert with google eye and asked what I want and she started with an every day natural look and by the time she was done with the eyes there were only 5 minutes left in my pickup.( I Can't drive due to my leg and hubby was tired after job and kept my daughters home and I went there with my son using wheel trans service, so I had a fixed pickup time that I told the staff several time and was assured they will get me all done before that time) any ways I requested her to leave it here and asked them for the gift card and was told they can't give it to me and I must have to buy something from that counter, well $35 isn't a big amount and I had booked for event if they told me @ the booking time that I have to buy something for $35 or above from them so what annoyed me was why they lied. with that it was exact my pickup time so I tell them ok keep the gift card and may be give me a note and tomorrow my hubby will pickup what I want because I don't have time to choose any thing but they said no you must take something right now so I pickup a lipstick without spending anytime on looking for colors and paid the remaining total and they just give lipstick and receipt in my hand? what really you don't put it in any little bag or anything just give it in customer's hand. We rushed out and luckily ride was a little late and I was able to catch it. Now I get home and looked in the mirror and I can't recall if I ever look uglier in my life. There was hell a lot of powder on all my face and specially my eyes that even after mascara my lashes looked covered with powder. The eyeliner was smudged terribly and then I understand why the MUA said don't worry if your line is not smooth you can always smudge it. I immediately removed makeup and washed my face and I am not exaggerating but I looked 10 times better with my washed face than what I looked with professional make over. Rant over but I hate the lipstick I bought because they pushed me to buy it. I was already thinking that I'll buy whichever lip product they use on me, which definitely didn't happen cause there was no time for blush and lippie to be applied. I hate being forced to buy something no matter how good it is. The finished look hurt my feelings and self esteem and I just realized that I was unintentially observing my face from different angles through out the day to see if I really look as bad as I look after that makeover so I'm venting it here.
Hi, I'm a synchronized swimmer at my University and I was wondering what makeup brands you would suggest to use for my performances. I want makeup that doesn't smudge kinda of like the makeup on the Olympic synchronized swimmers, that's why I know they exist. I'm just interested in mascara, eyeliner, and eye shadow. I've goggle some lists of the best waterproof makeup but they all vary and just made me even more confused on what to get. Any suggestions would be great!
Okay i use my mac concealer correcter for my spots and then apply the foundation powder but i feel like its still missing something. Of course after the foundation powder i put alittle blush and bronzer but idk i just feel like its still missing something. im still learning my ways with makeup. after the foundation powder step do i apply regular powder over it?
I have never tried a clear lip liner. Do they really make a difference? I checked MAC and they don't make one. I saw on the Sephora web site that there is one made by Sephora, OCC, Estee Lauder, UD, MUF, and No Cosmetics. Any advice? Thank You
I have NARS tinted moisturizer and it's a bit dewy for me. I'm NW45 and MUFE 178 I'm looking for something that will mattify my oily face. I like the look of the moisturizer (got a great deal on it too!) I want to keep it. Any suggestions? I have MSF by MAC and MUFE pressed foundation. I don't want to add color and both of those do that. TIA
I don't know if this has been noted by anyone, I did a quick search and it seems like it hasn't, but the MUFE Studio Case is on sale for $39! http://www.sephora.com/studio-case-P389565?icid2=m ake_up_for_ever_lp_holidaycollection_carousel_P389 ...
